Steven Romo joined ABC13 Eyewitness News in 2016 as a reporter and anchor.

He's a native Texan and an award-winning journalist who's anchored and reported for several stations across the Lone Star State.

Before heading to Houston, he ventured north of the Red River as an anchor in Tulsa.

Born and raised in Dallas, Steven got his start in journalism while at Texas A&M University, reporting for the daily student-run newspaper. He soon discovered broadcast news is his passion and says he's blessed to do what he loves every day.

He's covered a huge variety of stories: from hurricanes, terrorism suspects and disasters to politics, education, border issues and more. Steven says he's grateful that he gets to dig into the issues -- learn about them and help viewers make sense of it all.

In his spare time, you'll find him working out, watching mostly sci-fi movies, hanging with his family and -- of course -- watching the news.

Steven loves tweeting with viewers and interacting on social media. You can also email him story ideas, or just to say hi:
